Linehan brings in a Looker he's familiar with

Monday, August 17, 2009

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Lions have signed former Rams WR Dane Looker. The unrestricted free-agent was let go in the offseason in a youth movement, but was popular in St. Louis.

The move reunites the 33-year-old Looker with former Rams coach Scott Linehan, now the Lions offensive coordinator.

In The Den they're already speculating that this could be bad news for WR Keary Colbert, who had three glaring drops in Saturday's preseason game.
